Out of the Shadows

When I saw this coming up, walking down the trail, I knew I would be painting this. There was a huge overgrowth of vegetation and had created a tunnel of sorts that we walked through. You are able to see here that as much as we tried to assist and aid and teach and mentor there were times when all we did was go out on patrol and conduct our operations while the Iraqi counterparts were chillin' and talkin' with their buddies. The language barrier was enough that with only one interpreter it was difficult to make large leaps of progress. The actual training that was conducted was the most more instructional. The palm grove walks were great for me to get some cool reference and see how the local farmers worked.
